The movie is based on the true story of Alan Turing and his colleagues who broke the German Enigma code, helping the Allies to win WW II.

The movie reminded me of how far we have come in empowering women, accepting homosexuality, and embracing technology. By creating a machine to decode Enigma, Turing actually developed the first computer.
"Sometimes it is the people no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one imagines." - The Imitation Game
There are some good movies in the theatres right now, including American Sniper and Unbroken.

I hope you'll get a chance to see it.
